Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries








This delightful cool dessert goes great with summer berries. Make it in the morning, as it needs to chill for 6 hours. This is a long time to wait, but the pay off is well worth it.

Panna Cotta with Fresh Berries
6 servings

1 cup whole milk
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon unflavored powdered gelatin
2 cups assorted fresh berries
3 cups whipping cream
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon sugar

Pour the milk in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over it. Let the milk and gelatin stand for 3 to 5 minutes until the gelatin is softened. Pour milk and gelatin mixture into a heavy saucepan and stir over medium heat until the gelatin dissolves but the milk does not boil, it'll take about 5 minutes. Add the cream, honey, sugar, and salt. Stir entire mixture until the sugar dissolves, another 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat. Pour into 6 wine or dessert glasses so that they are 1/2 full. Let Cool slightly. Refrigerate until set, this will take at least 6 hours. Top with your assorted berries and serve.
